An Ubu review of the year.
Jan 1 2011. A cold day. Had soup for lunch. Took dog for walk.
Jan 2 2011. Still cold. Leftover soup. Took dog for walk.
Jan 3 2011. Slightly warmer. Run out of soup. Dog took self for walk.
Bored. Wife abandoned me, Ubuette busy dancing round bedroom with tongue hanging out like demented puppy listening to the odd selection of CDs she got for Christmas..so.. I thought I’d pose a little query.
What has been your ( musical or other) discovery of the year ?
Not necessarily what you think of as the “best” thing just the most interesting or startling new discovery. Have you found a third nipple on the sole of your foot ?* Have you succumbed to the delights of Boney M after years of ridiculing their fine output ?
What is it ? Come on, spill the beans.
Mine is this group. Kegawa No Maries ( they are, you may be shocked to hear, Japanese). A fine example of the common experience of bands the world over. Make great records for indie label- sign with major- spend too long in studio- release ever decreasingly interesting material- break up.
Still, fun while they lasted, I think.
* Yes, it really happens.
